What ways do you get confirmation that your magickal goals have acheived the desired results?

What are the physical signs? The inner signs? How do you distinguish these signs from coincidence?

I hate to be all Yoda about just kinda know :)

If what you're doing has an obvious physical response, one you can SEE and say, hey, it worked...then you SEE it. But it's not always that simple. Sometimes it's a change in the way you feel, sometimes the answer unexpectedly leads you to something else in your life that you can do to achieve the desired results (for example...last year, I did this money spell, to get a raise at work (coinciding with actually asking my boss for a raise)..I was flat broke, my bills were piling up, and I REALLY needed more money. I thought. I was denied the raise (looong story about the evils of working for IBM there), but was led to discover that I had all the money I needed, I just wasn't using it right! I re-budgeted and kept detailed logs of where I was spending, and I came up with a great plan. I still make the same amount, and now I have enough to spend and save, as well as take care of everythihg).

Distinguishing your results from coindidence...hehe, you just know. I know in my case, it just feels different when it's a plain old coincidence. A lot of that knowing comes from your own self confidence and intuition.

Some people say, that if you really want a tangible "sign" that a working has come to pass, that you should ask the god/dess/es specifically to be shown a sign, while you're doing the working. I've never asked for one, but folks who have say they do recieve them.

Hope this helps...I certainly babble on, don't I? :)

I seem ti "just now" whether or not something has worked properly, just as I seem to "just know" whether it's a bad day or time to do something. More bad than good has happened when I've trusted my peers over my intuition (i.e. almost got snowed in at a friend's house, had to swerve from a cat on icy roads, got stuck wandering in the woods for 12 hours in the middle of winter; all isolated incidents.) Every time I just get that "not a good idea" feeling, or that "yeah, go for it!" feeling, and I know how things will end up. It seems to get more accurate as I get older as well, so perhaps I had some form of psychic foresight in a previous life. Who knows. And now I'm just babbling...

I love it when I have "visited" someone through astral projection and later get confirmation that what I saw was really what was there

<sigh> I'm so envious.  I wish I could do astral projection. (tho I do admit I'd prefer to be able to physically teleport there.<g>)

You have to start with meditation first-- can you do that successfully?

Nope. still haven't gotten that down yet. It doesn't matter how quiet things are around me, every little sound makes me jump. <shrug>

You may need to start with walking meditations-- try walking alone in the woods-- a looooong walk, and just be with your thoughts-- that is a form of meditation too

Hmm, hadn't thought of that.  Sounds good.  I'll have to give it a try, if I can find a good place for it.
